Creamy Coconut-Cashew Soup with Okra, Corn, and Tomatoes


Okra’s can be very hard to find over here. So, when I found some in the Asian supermarket I just had to buy them. They gave me a good opportunity to try out Bryant Terry latest cookbook: Afro-Vegan.

Fusion Rice Bowl


Lately I joined a Vegan Potluck group. It’s always fun but it’s always also a big challenge. By coincidence we have a few people with allergies in the group. So when I prepare something for the potluck I can’t use nuts, gluten, refined sugars or beans.

Last time I prepared this Fusion Rice Bowl, and it was a big hit:

Vegan Finger Foods for Eurosong


So, yesterday we watched Eurosong. Although the music is almost always bad, we watch it for fun. It’s always a great mother-daughter moment. For the occasion I prepared some finger foods because that gave me a good excuse to use my latest cookbook purchase: Vegan Finger Foods.

Yesterday was also vegan baking day, and I had the chance to buy some delicious vegan food from the Bite Back stall.

The two puddings on the left were bought, on the right my first attempt on making mini raw cheesecakes. Using this recipe, but I found out that I didn’t have coconut oil in the house, so I replaced it with Coconut cream. It worked more or less. Anyway they were delicious.
